Public Power’s Reliability Shines Bright

Community-owned public power utilities like yours provide safe, reliable electricity - more reliable than other power providers.

How much more?

North Carolina public power communities experience 40% fewer outages than communities powered by other providers.

And, when power does go out, North Carolina public power communities get their power back on three times faster.

That reliability is about more than convenience.

Dependable energy from public power providers translates to over $75 million in economic value to public power communities and customers.1

The Value of Public Power

Along with providing reliable electric service, a municipally owned utility powers local jobs, investment in your community, and much more. And, since it’s a division of local government, it answers to you.

Our Communities

1.3 million people across North Carolina get their power from municipally owned utilities. That’s more citizens than the populations of Raleigh and Charlotte combined.
